Playing Miley Cyrus Works on New Album ‘Every Day,’ Thought Grammy Nom Was a 'Joke'

Miley Cyrus is just as impatient as we are to get her new tunes released -- but before we get amped on a new Miley album, there’s still time to celebrate Bangerz.

The 22-year-old starlet scored a Grammy nom for ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’ but told ET she didn't believe the news when she first heard it.

“I thought it was a joke,” she revealed during our new sit down interview with her. “My friend was in my room and said, 'Hey! You just got nominated for a Grammy,' and I was like, ‘You're kidding… there’s no way.’ I googled and I was like 'oh yeah! I am, I actually am!'”

And even with the Grammy nom under her belt, she’s trying not to get too amped about going home with the trophy. When asked if she was ready for music’s biggest day of the year, she humbly noted, “I don't know. I'm pretty mellow with that kind of stuff... I'm not a pessimist but I'm just saying I won't be crying myself to sleep if I don't win a Grammy. You know?”

Mi-Cy also revealed she’s hard at work on a follow-up to Bangerz, “I'm trying to get this stuff out ASAP,” she said. “I'm working on it!”

“I'm in the studio every day at my house,” she added.

Miley says that delay on the songwriting side is because she wants it to be current and candid.

“Just when I think I have my record done, something new happens where I want to write about it,” she said. “I just, I don't know what I want to go out there.”

MAC’s new Viva Glam campaign star often posts pics of Madonna to her Instagram account, and it turns out there might be a reason for that – a potential duet on Miley’s anticipated new album
